How long will unused skins last in a box?


Recommended Posts

I've had some of the skin issues where it would discolor the vinyl, and my dealer got me a lot of new skins. We seem to have the problem under control, so he suggested I just hold onto the skins in case my vinyl ever got really bad. How long should the skins last if kept boxed? Would they dry out eventually? Any info would be great

As long at you can keep them crease free - you can do whatever you want to them. I left some skins in a box for 60 days and it took about 6 months in the TX sun for the creases to come out after having the professionally installed.

Yeah, I had a whole boat worth of skins sit in a box for almost 2 years before I installed them. The creases still have not come completely out. I would recommend treating them with 303 vinyl protectant and rolling them. Maybe even try to store them some place that stays warm.
